Product Description

Oakley Currency Prescription Eyewear




Originality deserves its share of coin, so we created the world's first frame that combines temples of lightweight C-5 alloy with a front chassis made of stress-resistant O MATTER. The sculptural UNOBTAINIUM earsocks of CURRENCY salute the bike grip invention that launched Oakley, and our vintage logo strafes the sides with dimension. This comfortable eyewear goes from street to sport, so we engineered TWIN SHOCK hinges that hyper-flex when life starts busting through boundaries.

Our very first creation was a bike grip with a unique design that fit the rider's closed hand, and to honor warriors on wheels, we put the grip pattern on the outer facing of the earsocks. Our titanium TWIN SHOCK hinges flex beyond their normal open position for added durability. They are an innovation inspired by the leaf springs of racing machines, and they don't push the earstems into your head like inferior designs that maintain relentless pressure. The secure Three-Point Fit owes everything to UNOBTAINIUM, a synthetic that makes the earsocks increase grip when you sweat. You can match CURRENCY with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses in a wide range of options, and each frame comes with a collection specific case.

Oakley is renowned for optical technology, their innovations in frame architecture have always been the gold standard for precision, performance, durability and design. The latest Oakley breakthrough is a hinge mechanism that comes in two forms: MONO SHOCK and TWIN SHOCK, developed for Rx eyewear and sunglasses. Inspired by pro racing, the structures are similar to leaf springs used for shock absorption. MONO SHOCK has a single "tine&dquo; (a slender projecting part, like the tines of a fork) that bridges the frame and the ear stem. TWIN SHOCK utilizes two.

Here are the key benefits:

Durability. The peerless architecture is sturdier than conventional hinges because no springs are used. Instead, the mechanism is a solid component that takes advantage of a durable yet lightweight alloy of titanium, a premium metal that resists corrosion.

Flexibility. Oakley formulated the alloy to be flexible. When you push an ordinary frame stem even a subtle distance beyond its normal open position, you risk breaking the hinge. With Oakley's new design, the stem simply springs back to where it should be.

Comfort and fit. There is no inward pressure when the frame stems are in their normal open position. Subtle flexibility of the entire frame accommodates a wide range of head sizes.

Distinctiveness. This is a recognizable design feature, unique in its architecture and distinguishing in its simple beauty.

FRAME:

- Constructed of light weight, stress resistant O-MATTER front and durable C5 temples
- MUFFLER Font, TWIN SHOCK temples
- UNOBTAINIUM ear socks
- Collection specific case included

  Oakley Currency

19th September 2019

Glasses exceeded my expectations. A huge saving against the high street and quality is excellent. Although they took a couple of weeks to arrive, delivery was in line with the company’s terms and conditions. I’m really happy with them.

  Stylish value.

6th August 2018

The frames are quite heavy so consider having the lenses thinned. Always go for the best lenses with varifocals.
That said, they are very comfortable.

  First pair of glasses ever.

5th March 2017

These are the first pair of glasses I've had, after trying on about 50 pairs I decided on currency by Oakley. They are comfortable, well fitting and I like the way they look although I picked the slate colour as I found the black to be a little harsh looking. A couple of people have commented that they are heavy but I don't find them to be.
